the first year . . .

it never gets old. even the third time around. that indescribable moment when you first lay eyes on them. the first deep inhale of that new baby smell. the inspection of fingers and toes. first feed. first bath. that first gummy smile that makes your heart melt. when they roll over. sit up. start to move. when that first tooth finally breaks through. the first time they clap hands. wave bye-bye. the first glimpses of their personality. the first sloppy open mouth kiss. the first words {dada, ay-ya, boo-bee}. the thrill of that first wobbly step. the sudden arrival of their first birthday and the relief of knowing you've made it through the first year. 

the magical unfurling ~ from a tiny baby to a little person.

{there is not much that a third born really needs in the way of gifts. when stuck on you offered to send some things for oscar, i was pleased to discover a range of practical personalised gift ideas, perfect for a one-year-old. we have been using their labels for many years now. i was glad to find the great quality and design extends to their other products as well. here's where you can find the singlet, wheelie bag and wooden name puzzle}
